IMM COATING FINGERPRINT FOUNDATION

CODE: FPF

The paints and coatings industries have initiated the requirement for a polymeric “Coating Fingerprint Certificate” (similar to a Mill Certificate for metals) to improve quality assurance. Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) method has been selected as the appropriate method to provide the fingerprinting requirement in addition to other physical & chemical tests which are regularly conducted by the paint &coating manufacturer.

 

This 1 day course is consist of a half day theory lecture on the FTIR method followed by half day of demonstration of the FTIR equipment to provide participants the understanding of mechanics of the FTIR testing, appreciation of the strengths and limitations of FTIR method, interpretation and analysis of FTIR results, and a first-hand experience of running the FTIR testing with the actual FTIR equipment in the classroom.

 

This course is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to demand sufficient authority for his/her decision to be recognised by both client and contractor, in the preparation of Coating Fingerprint Certificate for third party or in-house laboratories.

 

Course Contents

  • Coating Fingerprint Certificate
  • Sampling standards of materials
  • FTIR analysis standard for protective coatings

Coating Fingerprint Quality Controller

IMM COATING FINGERPRINT QUALITY CONTROLLER

CODE: FPQC

The oil & gas and petrochemical industries with implement the requirement for Coating Fingerprint Certificate (equivalent to the Mill Certificate for Metals) for all the protective coatings and paints supplied to the oil & gas and petrochemical operators. As such, paint manufactures will be required to engage a “IMM Certified Coating Fingerprint Quality Controller” to conduct FTIR structural tests and all associated physical tests to produce a Coating Fingerprint Certificate. This course aims to formalize or improve the skills of carrying out basic quality control test using Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) method for structural analysis and other related physical analyses (e.g chemical and corrosion tests) associated with protective coatings. The course uses formal lectures, demonstrations & extensive practical exercises as teaching methods.

 

This course is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to demand sufficient authority for his/her decision to be recognised by both client and contractor, in the preparation of Coating Fingerprint Certificate for third party or in-house laboratories.
